Abstract

Introduction: Lymphomas are a group of malignant solid tumors involving cells of the lymphoreticular or immune system. Lymphomas are divided into two major categories: Hodgkin’s disease (HD) and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL). The incidence is bimodal with the first peak in the third decade of life, and a second smaller peek after the age of 50 years. The etiology of HL is still unknown, but some factors include a positive family history, higher socioeconomic status, and prior EB virus infections. Case Description: We present a case of Hodgkin’s lymphoma in a 52 year old male patient presenting with a swelling involving bilateral sub-mandibular region. Following incisional biopsy, Hodgkin’s lymphoma was diagnosed. Conclusion: Combination of chemotherapy and radiotherapy is the treatment of choice in Hodgkin’ s lymphoma.
